Equal Community Foundation, Pune

The Equal Community Foundation (ECF) was established in 2009 with the aim of developing gender equitable attitudes and behaviours among adolescent boys, aged 13-17 years, to end violence against girls and women through human rights-based programmes. The grant will support their endeavours to reach out to adolescent boys, and provide leadership, peer group support and knowledge and skills to publicly advocate and defend their position on gender equality. It will also help enable participants to change their own behaviour towards women and call out other men on abusive behaviour.
